My mother always told me that beauty is only skin deep. I think Coco Chanel sums it best with her quote above. There is more to elegance than meets the eye. When I was younger, I didn't quite believe my mother that beauty is only skin deep. As I have grown older, I now see the wisdom that my mother was trying to teach me. What really makes a person elegant and beautiful is what's on the inside. In this busy world we live in, people so often look at a person's outer shell without taking time to delve a little deeper into a person's soul. The truth is that it is a peek into a person's soul that allows us to see the real beauty the world has to offer.
